The video was part tutorial — showing people how to call their congressman, down to giving them his office number — and part infomercial, saying she hopes people will call her, too, with concerns.

By Chris Klint: Man whose nose was bitten in fight set free
Anchorage District Attorney Rick Allen said Thursday afternoon that the change of jurisdiction stems from the definition of second-degree assault, the felony with which Russell was originally charged, calling for an attack to be committed with a “dangerous instrument.” Allen’s office generally prosecutes local felonies, while Theno’s handles misdemeanors.
